I love this podcast. Kendra speaks to her audience like only a best friend can. She gives you the truth even if it can sting but only to help you be a better person, a better mom. I love her honesty and mission of positivity.

Description

It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.

Episode Date
An honest conversation about resentment in motherhood
36:19

I'm going to say something that will immediately ruffles some feathers: there have been times in my 13 years as a mom that I've felt resentful of the life I'd created. I'm saying that out loud in the podcast today as a way to start the conversation and end the shame. Resentment is the bi-product of circumstances, mindsets and beliefs and it doesn't mean you don't absolutely love your children.

Ignoring the feelings, or believing that this has to be " the way it is" in modern motherhood is going to keep resentment at the wheel, driving your life and causing you more unhappiness. You deserve more. Let's have an open and honest conversation about where it comes from and how to handle the feelings.

BEST OF: The cost of constantly complaining
39:06

It's our BEST OF series, summer edition.

The only thing worse than complaining is the complaining about complaining. This episode is complain-free. Instead, this is an honest discussion about the price we're all paying by living our lives through the lens of negativity and complaints.

Complaining is more than just negativity about your situation, it's a grasp for control in the moment. But what is the cost of doing that all the time and what example are we really setting for our children?

BEST OF: Meal planning 101 (even if you hate meal planning)
34:20

It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date. Today, we're taking you back to meal planning 101 (even for those of you that really hate meal planning. I see you...)

I'll be honest, I have had a love/hate relationship with meal planning over the years. As I dig in deeper to that relationship, I realize it all comes down to the challenge most of us face: overcomplication-itis

Meal planning can be as simplistic or as sophisticated as your heart desires (or your time allows) but let's talk about how to get started and make it easy, even if the thought of meal planning makes you gag.

BEST OF: How to clean like a professional house cleaner
29:55

It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date. Today's episode is packed with practical and valuable tips to make cleaning your home less complicated.

After 11 years in the professional house cleaning biz, I learned a thing or two about how to clean more effectively in less time. It isn't about being the best. I started out knowing absolutely nothing, but over time I learned and it helped me not only build a thriving business, but also keep my own house clean in less time. I'm passing on this knowledge to my own kids now, and onto you.

You don't have to like cleaning to clean like a pro. It's all about making small shifts that have lasting results. Cleaning shouldn't be taking up all your time, friend.

BEST OF: Why we need homemaking now more than ever
29:01

It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date.

It is officially time to let go of all the myths and lies we've been believing as homemakers and embrace the finer parts of making a home that don't involve the likes of Pinterest-perfect perfectionism or burdened mothers acting as servants.

In this busy, noisy world, it may be more important than ever to cultivate a space in your life that covers you from the stresses of the outside world. Modern homemakers, unite.

The one's for the people pleasers
40:38

Where are all my people pleasers at? *sees all the hands raised*

It feels like being a people pleaser would be a great thing. Who doesn't want to make others happy? But is that really what we're doing when we put everyone else's happiness and well-being before our own, or are we really just avoiding the discomfort that comes from setting boundaries?

Are we really concerned with appeasing other people, or are we concerned with how we'll be perceived if we don't?

When "Just think positive!" becomes toxic
29:55

"Just think positive!" We've all heard it. We've all said it. It seems so harmless. It's good advice, right? Right...until it's not.

Positivity is a beautiful thing, but pretending to be positive by neglecting our true feelings is not. Positivity can become a toxic cycle when we're using it to avoid our true feelings and emotions, or the uncomfortable work that needs to be done on our mindset.

You're allowed to NOT feel positive, mama. Let's chat about how to create a more positive mindset for you without in a way that feels freeing, not shameful or toxic.

There is so much more to explore and learn from this episode. Check out the show notes and other goodies here.

5 ways to help your children create a growth mindset
35:16

A growth mindset is an open mindset and our children deserve to learn the power of creating abundance and success on their own terms. Growth mindset is the belief that anything is possible and that we are in fact NOT victims of our own circumstances. The earlier children learn the power of their own thoughts, the more equipped they will be in adulthood to focus on growth and joy over the limits they self-impose.

Let's have a real talk about mommy burnout
39:35

In the adulting Olympics, moms would be the juggling champions, hands-down (wouldn't it be great if that were an actual Olympic sport?!) Moms are master jugglers and pride themselves on doing all the things, but is doing all the things the right thing?

Mommy burnout is a hot topic these days and what I've found is there is a lot of blame going around. So let's have a real conversation about mommy burnout, where is stems from, how we can take responsibility for it and how we can free ourselves from it once and for all.

How to love your home even if you don't love your house
32:47

This is a common one, mamas and it's worth an honest conversation.

Living in a house you aren't super jazzed about can affect how you feel about your home overall. Our houses are dwellings, but our homes are a feeling. We carry them with us wherever we go. How do we go about loving our homes when we don't exactly love the dwellings we're in?

The true difference between embracing imperfection and settling for less
25:45

Progress over perfection is a beautiful and powerful quote and mindset shift. Perfection is an unattainable goal and reaching for it wastes heaps of time, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for less. Embracing a life of imperfect effort and imperfect moments is not the same as settling for less than you truly desire.

Creating your optimal (NOT perfect) day
32:47

Someone once asked me, "What does your perfect day look like?" and my response was "I looks like an imperfect day because I can't create a perfect day."

The word "optimal" has been popping up in my life lately and while I usually teach about how to create your ideal day, I've started to shift a bit. What if we thought about creating a framework for our days around what is optimal, what is best? What would serve us the best? What can we get rid of? What can we keep? If your day was created around peak performance in the season you're in now with the resources you have now, what would it look like? Let's explore that. This episode is pure fire!

The power of self-compassion
30:27

The nurturing soul of a mother is full of compassion for her children, but how much warmth and understanding do you extend to yourself? We're conditioned to be hard on ourselves because the mindset of perfectionism runs deep. What would happen if we showed ourselves the same grace and compassion in our worst moments that we do for other people?

Why I stopped trying to make my kids happy
36:31

Moms are nurturers by nature and nothing feels more nurturing than providing our kids with happy lives. However, in my never-ending quest in the self-development world, I've realized that fostering happiness is not the same as constantly trying to force happiness onto my children.

We are not responsible for the emotions of others and micromanaging the feelings of our kiddos is exhausting and pretty unproductive. I want to create a safe space for my children to feel a wide range of emotions, so that when they're unhappy, they learn to cope instead of seek out someone to fill them up. The road can feel difficult, mama and I hope this episode helps you navigate it.

How to stay confident in your choices in the era of sanctimommies
40:03

Remember the days when you didn't know everyone's opinion about everything and they didn't know your opinion about everything either? The good old days. Opinions are great because they make us all different, but being sanctimonious in the way we show up with those opinions can be damaging to the confidence level of us all, moms included.

Everywhere you turn, it seems like the sanctimommies have taken over, judging other moms for how they live. How can we stay confident in how we show up for our lives when it seems like we're always being judged, or are judging others? More lovingly, how can we understand why moms are so much more judgmental these days and show them compassion in their not-so-kind moments.

What it means to be a homemaker in 2020
31:15

Times may be changing, but homemaking is still important. Why? Because your home is more than the cleaning, the cooking, the momming. A home is what happens inside and outside the walls, separate from the material world. Our homes are intangible, a feeling more than anything. That never stops being important.

So what does that mean for modern moms and reluctant homemakers alike? Today is a discussion that answers that very questions with truth and respect.

From the viewpoint of a stepchild
40:07

Vulnerable. That's what this episode is. In my motherhood communities, we get a lot of questions about step, or bonus parenting. I may not be a stepparents, but I am a stepchild and have been since I was 3. I wanted to open up on this episode and give a unique perspective from the viewpoint of a "bonus kid." Sometimes, the best ways to approach difficult situations are by putting yourself in the other person's shoes.

"I am worthy of being taken care of"

This month, our mindfulness episodes are focused simply on a statement, an affirmation to base your mindset shift on. You spend your life caring for your children, your family and the people around you, but you are worthy of being taken care of, too. The more you are filled with love from yourself and care from those around you, the more you'll have to give without resentment or exhaustion.

Q&A with my teenage daughter
01:01:16

It's official: I'm the mother of a teenager daughter.

Someone catch me as I fall over in disbelief.

I am uninterested in typecasting her in the role of "moody teen" and instead plan to let her forge her own path, emotions and all.

We thought it would be a great way to celebrate the birth of my first born by doing an insightful and honest Q&A session with her. Our listeners (and their teens!) asked and we answered.

You'll hear everything from how she feels about having entrepreneur parents to how she deals with peer pressure to how she stays confident in a world that tries to strip girls of their worth. This is the perfect episode to listen to with your daughters, your preteens and your teens alike.

This month, our mindfulness episodes are focused simply on a statement, an affirmation to base your mindset shift on. You are more than "just" a mom. You are a person. You are a woman. You are more than the sum of the titles you carry around.

The trap of being an overachiever
35:05

Being an overachiever was a badge of honor for much of my life. Achieving gave me purpose and accolades made me feel worthy, but at what cost?

There is a trap that's easy to fall into as a go-getter, an overachiever in life and it's time we discuss what price we pay in motherhood for falling into this trap. The gold-star mentality can be costly when no one is handing us gold stars anymore.

A mom's guide to getting things done when you're totally unmotivated
30:04

It's a new, fresh year and everyone is trying to get (and stay) motivated to accomplish all the things. I have news for you: motivation is NOT what you need to be successful or get things done. Motivation is a feeling. It's based on emotions. Even as an exhausted mama, you can still accomplish incredible things withOUT relying on motivation to do it.

Here's how.

I am self-confessed boundary ninja, but it hasn't always been that way. Around the holidays, which is my favorite time of the year, the last thing I want is to feel stressed and overwhelmed. I want to enjoy the time with my family and the season upon us and boundaries are the way to do that.

BONUS: Mindful As a Mother is OPEN
32:18

FRIENDS!

If you listen to the podcast, you know that mindset work and mindfulness is a huge part of my world. In a society obsessed with Google and always finding the "how", I'm obsessed with the why. Mindset is our set of beliefs and attitudes, and it determines every decision we make. So why are we not more focused on shifting what we think instead of what we do?

I'm changing that and inviting you to do the same. In this bonus episode, I'm letting you in on a secret I've been keeping. The doors to my brand new course Mindful As a Mother are officially open for pre-enrollment and you're invited to join now!

How to stop "routine-ing" your life away
26:23

If you've been around the Mother Like a Boss™ world for any amount of time, you know one of my signature phrases is, "Routines should fit into your life, not the other way around." Routines are great, the bee's knees for sure, but what happens when they become an obsession? It's easy to become obsessed with micromanaging the moments of our lives to avoid the chaos we fear, but is that any way to really enjoy your life?

Today's episode explores how to let go of the stronghold that routines can have if we're not careful and how to allow routines to serve your life so they don't RUN your life.

How I found financial freedom through my online business
32:01

When I started my first business at 22, not knowing anything about business, I didn't think much about financial freedom. I was brought up to believe you worked, made money then retired. It wasn't until years later when I opened my mind to new possibilities that I realized I could create my own financial freedom for my family while empowering moms around the world to create freedom in their own homes.

The question gets asked often, "How did you start Mother Like a Boss and how has it helped your family?" As always, I'm opening up in another vulnerable episode that I hope will empower more women to seek financial and time freedom for themselves.

Are you afraid of succeeding?
09:22

We're all familiar with fear of failure, but what about a fear of success? It seems downright nutty to fear doing well and yet here so many of us sit afraid of being too much, having too much or maintaining too much.

Whether it's at a job, in a business, at home with your kids, in your marriage or just managing your home, fear of success is real and ultimately causes us to self-sabotage so we never quite reach a level that seems out of reach.

Finding the best way versus the right way

Instead, let's work on finding the BEST way. The best way that works for our home, our family, our values and our schedules.

How I actually keep my house clean in under 30 minutes a day
35:17

I'm still shocked at how controversial the topic of house cleaning can be in the motherhood community and how dead-set we all are that it has to be the worst, most exhausting thing in the world. It's no wonder how many side-eyes I get when I say I spend only 30 minutes a day cleaning my house.

With two kids, a business and a slew of other responsibilities, I'm pretty uninterested in spending my precious moments cleaning inefficiently. I want to give you back your minutes and allow you to spend less time cleaning and more time living.

The truth about expectations
35:51

"I have high expectations." is a phrase I've heard my entire life, from teachers, parents and even out of my own life. But what does that really mean? In the world of motherhood, having expectations of our children and family can cause more resentment than good, especially when they aren't communicated.

How do you truly create a home that is managed well without demanding unrealistic expectations of yourself and others, and what does unrealistic even mean? How can we learn to let go of control that expectations hold over others and start communicating our needs in a productive way?

5 words and phrases we don't use in our home
27:43

We're not an overly strict household. I'm not an overly strict mother, but when it comes to the words we use in our house, my husband and I are sticklers.

The words and phrases we use matter, and I don't mean swearing. I mean the negative words we've let infiltrate our daily conversations that get passed down to our children. I'm far from perfect but eliminating certain words and phrases have given us the power of positivity and abundance for our family.

My money story
39:52

Money is a loaded topic and one most people stay away from.

But not me.

I love money because I know the true power that can be found when good people have money. As women, we're still playing catch-up and money can feel like an icky topic, especially if we're not the one "bringing home the bacon."

It's still important. I'm here to tell my own winding story and shed some light on the transformation you can make when you become educated about money, your own money issues and what you can do when you face up to the financial situation you're in.

Greed is different than abundance
07:14

We're bringing back Mindset Mondays, and now with a twist. These episodes are 5 minutes or less and just what you need to get a kick-in-the-butt nudge of empowerment for your week.

Wanting more for yourself isn't greedy, so why does it feel that way? Because we've been told our entire lives that giving is more important than taking. But abundance isn't about taking, it's about receiving and the more you receive, the more you can give. This is a short, powerful episode with words that will strike at the heart of this issue: Greed and abundance are NOT the same.

How to create your home's culture and why it's so important
30:24

The way we run our home is so much more than the sum of it's parts. It's more than the cleaning, the cooking, the wiping butts and playing taxi driver to our kids. Much like any other social group, our home is built on the culture we create for it.

On today's episode, I want to take you inside this idea and why spending all of your time focusing and stressing about the minutia of day-to-day homemaking isn't solving the problem. Let's chat about how creating a culture in your home that fits with your values will bring you more joy (and less wanting to huddle in a corner and cry.)

What I wish I had known about homemaking 13 years ago
25:26

They say hindsight is 20-20. I think that phrase was created about motherhood. We go into this season of newness not knowing what to expect, but expecting to know it all. Of course, we don't.

I resisted homemaking for years, or at least the word itself. Embracing it for what it can do for my life has brought me peace and joy beyond measure. Today, I'm traveling back in time and telling my former self what I wish I knew about homemaking and motherhood then.

We're pulling a question out of the figurative mail bag today for some Q&A action. Today's burning question: "How do I get my kids to do chores without constantly nagging?" It isn't nearly as difficult as we're all making it, but it's going to require more than an expensive chore chart from Etsy and a fancy reward system.

Meal planning 101 (even if you hate meal planning)
33:42

I'll be honest, I have had a love/hate relationship with meal planning over the years. As I dig in deeper to that relationship, I realize it all comes down to the challenge most of us face: overcomplication-itis

Meal planning can be as simplistic or as sophisticated as your heart desires (or your time allows) but let's talk about how to get started and make it easy, even if the thought of meal planning makes you gag.

Motherhood, like life, is just a series of seasons strung together, but the newness of our seasons can leave us feeling busy, stressed and wondering how to cope.

How to embrace homemaking as a modern, incredible woman
26:07

We are women, hear us roar! Modern women are the raddest, but we also have more on our plates than ever before. We're also absorbing information at more rapid rate now and playing the comparison game with everyone we follow on social media.

With all that's being thrown at us, homemaking is more important than ever before. Now, I'm not talking about that outdated June Cleaver-esque perfectionism we all picture when I say the word "homemaking." Instead, I'm talking today about how we can still embrace running a home, even as the most awesome modern version of you that there is.

The cost of constantly complaining
37:37

The only thing worse than complaining is the complaining about complaining. This episode is complain-free. Instead, this is an honest discussion about the price we're all paying by living our lives through the lens of negativity and complaints.

Complaining is more than just negativity about your situation, it's a grasp for control in the moment. But what is the cost of doing that all the time and what example are we really setting for our children?

It's Independence Day here in the United States and I'm celebrating the only way I know how: by talking about house cleaning. I'm loads of fun at parties, friends.

Making it a burden rather than just another thing you do is creating undo stress in your life. Today, let's find freedom from the burdens of house cleaning and home management all together.

How to deal with criticism and negativity
53:25

I have to admit that it feels like we're drowning in negativity these days and moms are getting the brunt of it. Everyone has an opinion on how you should raise your children and live your life, but are all opinions bad? Is all criticism negative? And how to be sift through the opinions without feeling worse about ourselves?

I'm opening up today about the negativity and criticism I receive in my business and how I've learned to deal with the so-called "haters." What I really want you to take from this episode is how you, the mom who just wants to live her life and love her children, can deal with criticism being hurled your way and decide which is constructive and which is just judgy negativity.

During today’s episode, I also list a series of qualifying questions I go through whenever I feel the critical eye upon me. Here are those questions for your reference:

  • Do I know them?
  • Do they know me?
  • Do I respect them or their opinion?
  • Is their opinion or criticism related to something I’m interested in changing?
  • If this came from someone else, would I feel differently?
  • Why is this triggering me?

The real truth about the "hot mess mom" culture
42:01

Today, I'm getting as honest and real as I can about the pervasive "hot mess mommy" culture that's swept through motherhood over the last few decades, and giving my thoughts on why we at Mother Like a Boss™ choose to take a very different approach to empowering women.

Is it really helping us to be told that motherhood HAS to be a struggle, day- in and day-out? Not that is "can" be a struggle, or "will feel" like a struggle, but that it is absolute and we have no choice in the matter? What if instead, we acknowledged the messy days and messy seasons without creating a culture that perpetuates negativity in motherhood.

Moms deserve a life-jacket, not a boat to circle us round and round telling us that drowning in mom life is just something we should have to accept.

If you're ready for truth and some real mom empowerment, this is your episode, mama.

When good goals go bad
27:40

Not all goals are created equal. We're taught to aim for the stars and reach for the moon, but if what you want out of life doesn't require you to shoot rockets off into space, why are you?

Mothers are led to believe there is one way to do things: one way to run their home, one way to be a mom, one way to do it all. Your aspirations shouldn't reflect what you "think" you should be aiming for. Putting effort into the wrong thing is what makes good goals go bad.

Gratitude is truly a gateway to a life of joy and fulfillment, but it doesn't need to to something we shame our way into when you're feeling down. We're allowed to feel our feelings. Whether it's frustration, anger, guilt or sadness, our feelings are real. We can use gratitude as an invitation to shift those feelings, not a punishment for not feeling happy.

Why I don't live with FOMO

FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out

I saw that acronym floating around the interwebs last year and admittedly had to Google it (old person, party of 1)

I know the feeling. I've been there. Saying yes to things not because I want to do them, but because I fear missing out. Social media has made us more fearful than ever as moms of missing out (or having our children) miss out on what everything else is experiencing.

But your life doesn't have to be shrouded in fear. What if instead of fearing what you're missing, you embrace what you're experiencing?

"A place for everything and everything in its place." A cheesy cliche, but a true statement. You don't have to go label crazy or spend every dollar you have at The Container Store to organize your home enough so that everything has a place to go. Giving your "stuff" a home is the easiest way to repel clutter and creates systems that are easy to follow and sustain in your home.

How to find your mom circle when you've moved away w/ Allie Casazza
49:44

With a ton of giddy excitement, I'm welcoming Allie back to the podcast and our conversation goes deep into the difficulties of finding and keeping friends when you're a mom. We put so much of our energy into our homes, our families and our partners, we're often left with a void that is only filled by true, lasting friendships.

Today, Allie is shining a light on how to make friends not only as a mom, but how to do it when you've moved away. Whether you've chosen to pick up and move across the country, a job has relocated you, or the military has brought you to a variety of new places, this episode is a great encouragement to step out of your bubble to find friendships of all kinds with women who are also looking for another adult to call friend.

Time to put some skin in the game
22:49

When was the last time you truly invested in yourself, either with money or time? Moms are notoriously bad at deciding we're worthy of investment, as we're so used to giving to our families.

This episode is one of tough love, but it's all the advice and encouragement I wish someone had given me 13 years ago.

We're worthy of the investment and if you're looking for lasting change, it's time to put some real skin in the game, friend.

Confessions of a "submarine parent"
35:19

I'll admit, I'm not a hoverer. I've always been independent and want to raise my children to be the same. Because of this, I consider myself a submarine parent: you know, the kind that sits below the surface, comes up to check on things every now and then, and goes back below the surface if all is good.

This isn't a judgement of anyone else's parenting style. Quite the opposite. This is the confession of a parent that tries to ride the line between overbearing and totally passive. We're all in this together, mamas. (and no matter how you're parenting your children, we'll all eventually just find ourselves fishing a Cheerio out of someone's nose in the middle of the night.)

How to stop trying to keep up with the (mom) Joneses
28:10

Motherhood is a journey and we're all on our own path, so why are we so focused on what everyone else is doing? We've become obsessed with keeping up with other moms who are trying to keep up with other moms who are trying to keep up with other moms. It's a cycle of comparison that is disempowering and fruitless.

Let's instead compare ourselves to others only when it empowers us to do better and encourages us that if she can do it, so can I. It's time for us to run (or walk, or crawl, or waddle) our own races, mamas.

Keeping our word to ourselves
18:46

"I say what I mean and I mean what I say." I've been known to utter this phrase once or twice (or a hundred) times as a mom, but do I really mean it when it comes to myself? We're so busy trying to keep our promises and our word to our children, our spouses and our friends that we let self-integrity fall by the wayside.

If you want to see progress, it's time to hold ourselves to the integrity we expect of others. Say what you mean and mean what you say, mama.

We're almost at the end of the first quarter of the year and I'm thinking, "How is that even possible?" Time strikes again! While we ponder how it's possible that it's already the end of the first quarter, it's also the best time to check in with your goals.

How to clean like a professional house cleaner
29:48

After 11 years in the professional house cleaning biz, I learned a thing or two about how to clean more effectively in less time. It isn't about being the best. I started out knowing absolutely nothing, but over time I learned and it helped me not only build a thriving business, but also keep my own house clean in less time. I'm passing on this knowledge to my own kids now, and onto you.

You don't have to like cleaning to clean like a pro. It's all about making small shifts that have lasting results. Cleaning shouldn't be taking up all your time, friend.

"We are very good judges for the mistakes of others and very good defense lawyers for our own mistakes." -Nicky Gumble

We live in a very judgmental mom culture, where there is always someone to let you know you're making a mistake or the wrong choice. Mommy judgement is alive and well, but what about also discussing our own judgements of others and ourselves?

Today, I want to have an honest and open discussion about judgement. What it really means, where it really comes from and how we can start to pull away from people in our lives that have nothing but judgmental things to say to us on the regular.

Ep 112 Lessons from a life-long worrier
26:48

Would you consider yourself a worrier? I used to be and call myself a recovering worrier now. After years of deep work, I know now that my worry was caused not by anxiety, but rather the opposite was occurring: my need to control situations was the cause of the anxiety I felt.

Motherhood is a never-ending story of possible worry and overthinking about what could go wrong, but I've found that no amount of that overthinking makes it any easier and rarely do our worst thoughts even come true.

Today's episode is my story and a vulnerable look into how it feels to live inside your own head even when you know logically how ridiculous it is.

29:34

Self-care is a hot issue right now in the motherhood community and rightfully so. Moms, more than any other, are often left feeling depleted as we care for those around us and make excuses for why we can't care for ourselves. No more.

Today, I want to give you an honest and raw look at what I do everyday to care for myself above anyone else. When I'm at my best, I'm able to give my best. Although my family is my world, I will be with myself until the end and it's important that I care for my needs first so I can truly and without resentment care for others.

We're nurturers to so many. It's time for us to nurture the moms we are and honor the moms we aspire to be.

It is such a joy that I get to bring back on-air coaching calls to the podcast. These discussions with real moms and real students are filled with truth and helpful to so many other struggling mamas out there.

Ep 107 Stop making decisions out of fear
13:20

Around every corner in motherhood, there seems to be another thing to be afraid of. But what would our lives look like if we stopped making our everyday decisions out of fear? Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of being judged? We don't have to throw caution to the wind and live recklessly in order to enjoy a life where our decisions are based more on love than on fear.

Ep 106 Organization 101
30:57

Getting and staying organized isn't about how many storage containers or bins you have in your home. The last thing we need is more stuff to hold our stuff. Instead, I want to help you think of organization as nothing more than a system, something that can be replicated over and over again to give you ease in your life.

So, how do YOU feel about getting organized?

28:49

In a world full of devices, screens, social media and all things internet based, screen time is a hot topic. It's a common question I get, "How should I handle screen time in my home?"

The truth is, I don't have all the answers. All I know is what works for us, and what works for us is setting clear boundaries and making our values clear. This episode is all about how my husband and I handle screen time in our home and what has worked for us.

Ep 103 Letting go of the need to control
19:22

I can't even describe the ways my life positively changed when I started letting go of the need to control everything in my life and started practicing the fine art of surrender. Surrendering isn't about giving up, it's about accepting what is so you can take more inspired action.

I know how easy it is to want to white-knuckle our way through motherhood, trying to control every aspect of our children and home, but if we can let go just for a moment, we will see the beauty in surrender and ease of true beingness.

Ep 102 Minimizing what isn't needed & embracing motherhood with a purpose w/ Allie Casazza
38:30

Let's all just face it: we are living with far too much stuff. Too many things, too many options, too many obligations. My guest today is on a mission to provide more for moms by showing them how to live with less.

Allie Casazza, host of The Purpose Show podcast, founder of the globally-praised course Your Uncluttered home, and one of my best friends in the whole word is bringing a lot of truth and wisdom in this episode.

Allie and I have an open conversation about what it's like to make motherhood your identity, why legalism is dangerous to minimalism and how you can free yourself from obligation by learning how to say NO more often. Join us, mamas.

Ep 101 Being patient with life, ourselves & our children
15:11

They say that patience is a virtue, but did "they" ever have kids?

As a self-proclaimed impatient girl since childhood, I've seen the danger in living from a place of "Next, please. Hurry up!" Impatience strips us of the present moment.

In this episode, I want to encourage you to take a breath and move through life with more ease and less expectation. We'd be amazed what we can enjoy and experience without the wait of expediency looming over our shoulders.

Ep 099 How I'm starting 2019 with purpose
36:21

It's a new year, mamas and that means it's time to reflect on the last 365 days and make plans for the time ahead of us. I'm not into resolutions (as heard in a previous episode.) I concentrate on intentional goals and creating a word of the year that sparks purpose in my life.

Today's episode is dedicated to starting the year off right, without lofty resolutions that won't be met. Instead, I want to talk about purpose and how you can achieve everything you want in your home, your life and your relationships in this brand new year.

Ep 097 No more resolutions (and why I gave them up)
22:28

How is it possible that we're at the end of 2018 already? Didn't we just start?

With the end of the year coming up fast, resolutions are all the rave. Everyone has one (or ten) to set, but inevitably, most will be completely abandoned by February 1. I've fallen victim to it myself, which is why I quit the resolution game many years ago.

I'm a goal oriented person and love to challenge myself to improve and change. While I don't set up resolutions to start off my year, I do create other intentions and plans to keep me on track and growing.

I'm overjoyed to bring you a conversation about such a thing today with Abigail Cannon.

Abigail is the founder of ABCs of Sleep and believes in creating positive sleep habits for both your baby and you.

Ep 094 Running a home when you're self-employed
26:50

It's funny to think that I've been self-employed for as long as I have been a mom and homemaker, but I've raised both my business and kiddos together.

Doing either of those two things can be stressful and time consuming enough, but doing them both at the same time take a bit of strategy (and a whole lot of letting go)

Today, I'm taking you behind the scenes into how I run my home as a self-employed mama with a self-employed husband as well.

Ep 093 The father behind Mother Like a Boss
01:00:57

Back by popular demand is the father like a boss himself, my husband Adam. Creating and leading my mission has been a joy for me, but it isn't always easy. With kids and a home to keep up with, having someone by my side that supports me, loves me and encourages me while also taking on half of the responsibility like a good partner should has been more important than anything.

Join us for a fun, sometimes serious, sometimes silly chat about what it's like from the dad's point of view and how he views homemaking from a father's point of view.

Ep 091 Why I don't balance work & home
25:05

To balance, by definition, means to distribute weight evenly or keep in a steady position so it doesn't fall. That doesn't sound like the kind of carefree and exciting way I want to run my business, run my home or mother my children. I've heard so much about "work/life balance" since I became a mother and entrepreneur and quite honestly, I don't practice it.

Whether you're trying to do it all and exhausting yourself by trying to walk the tightrope of work and home, or children and marriage, or work and personal, this episode is meant to encourage you to embrace the harmony of life through systems, not perfect and equal balance.

Ep 087 The power of positive parenting w/ Rachel Bailey
42:06

When I started Mother Like a Boss, I knew there was one area that I wasn’t going to pretend to be an expert in: parenting. While I’ve learned a lot over the years, I wanted to bring positive parenting experts to my audience that are teaching parenting from a place of positivity and happiness.

Today, I’m so thrilled to introduce you to Rachel Bailey of Redefining Perfect Parenting. This interview is really more of a candid discussion between two moms who believe wholeheartedly is helping moms become confident in their abilities through better communication, happiness and positivity.

Rachel is spilling some serious knowledge and truth bombs on everything from the role that cognitive development plays into chores to letting our children feel a range of emotions and teaching them to ride them out. If you’re ready to redefine perfect parenting, come along for a listen.

BONUS EPISODE | How to live your best mom year, EVER
27:17

There is a heartbreaking trend I am seeing: Moms who don’t take the time to live their best lives because they are two wrapped up in helping others live theirs.

You are deserving of a beautiful year and an even more beautiful life, but no one is going to do it for you. It takes dreaming, and declaration, and action.

So today, I’m making a special announcement for the moms out there that are ready to live their best mom year, free from resolutions they won’t commit to or achieve. Instead, we’re focusing on goals and how you can set them without stress and achieve them on a timeline that works for you.

This is a revolution against resolutions. Join us!

If you're ready to join, head over to www.motherlikeaboss.com/bestmomyear

Ep 085 Creating a "sick kit" for your home
20:39

With the holiday season and cooler weather (at least where I live) comes the runny noses and scratchy throats. But no matter what time of year it is, being sick or caring for someone in your home that's sick is no fun.

A "sick kit" should really be called a "well kit" because that's the goal. The goal of a sick kit is to keep the things on hand that we'll need to get well, so we're not making those late night trips to the drug store or scrambling for what we need.

In today's episode, I'm getting into the details of creating a kit or basket for your home and for your family.

Ep 083: 4 ways you're making the holidays harder than they have to be
22:54

It’s beginning to look a lot like…stress?

I love the holidays so much and the last few months of the year are my favorite, but I also understand that with that comes the possibility of stress and exhaustion.

When I became a mom, I really wanted to make the holiday season as fun for our little family as possible and in the process, took on too many things and let my boundaries fall away. Today, I’m talking about the 4 ways we’re making the holidays way harder than they have to be, and how to approach them with more ease and peace.

Tis the season for joy and love, mama.

Ep 080: 3 ways I'm still a homemaking work in progress
15:09

I’m not perfect and to be honest, I don’t want to be. Running a home and a business simultaneously means there’s a whole lot of room for error and I welcome that. Mistakes are the lessons that allow me to be better, to do better and to teach better.

I’ve come a long way and homemaking is much easier now than it’s ever been before (thank you routines) but I’m still a work in progress. In the spirit of total transparency, I’m sharing 3 of the ways I’m still working on myself. Our goals shouldn’t be to get to a finish line, but instead run the race that feels as enjoyable as possible. That’s life. That’s motherhood.

Ep 074: 5 things I do everyday to keep my home running
22:23

Running my home is something I have come to love more than most things in my life. I get a lot of satisfaction out of living in a home that feels managed and unburdened by stress. There are a few key habits I've formed that help me do that.

Today, I'm pulling back the curtain and sharing 5 things I do everyday (ish. Everyday-ish...) that keep my home running like a well-oiled machine and not like my '93 Toyota Tercel. These habits have been formed over time, after a lot of trial and error. They keep us on track as a family and me on track as a mom, wife and business CEO.

Ep 071: How to develop a nightly routine you can fall in love with
35:25

I have a pretty strict philosophy in my home: if it can be done at night rather than in the morning, I'm doing it. I love my nighttime routine with all my heart because it allows me to go to bed, set up for success for the next day before it even begins. I want to make future me proud of present me and not grumpy for having to start the morning off in chaos.

Today, we're talking not only about the importance of having a great evening routine, but how you can start to create one that you can stick to and fall in love with.

Ep 070 From pregnant college dropout to mom boss CEO

I took a very deep breath as I hit publish on this episode. I’m raw, I’m vulnerable, I’m speaking my truth and telling my story. My journey from a young and naive 22 year old pregnant college drop out to mom boss CEO now has not been without it’s issues and hurdles. In fact, the path has been littered with roadblocks and navigating them has taught me the true meaning of grace.

My story is an important part of my greater mission to reach moms where they are now and empower them to be the best version of themselves. I hope you hear my words (through held back tears at many points) and let them inspire you to go forth in your mom journey with confidence.

We know them. We've been a part of them in some form. They strip us of joy and keep us wrapped up in stress.

Ep 065: My work-at-home mom schedule
28:13

I've always been what society would consider a "working mom" although my belief is that every mom is a working mom. Since my oldest daughter was a tiny little bean inside my belly, I have owned and operated my very own business. Since going all in with Mother Like a Boss and ending my cleaning business almost 17 months ago, my schedule has dramatically changed.

Although my schedule may not look similar to yours, I wanted to give you a glimpse inside my day-to-day routines, how I worked at home before my son was in school and how it works now. Even if you don't run a business or work from home, I hope this episode is encouraging to moms of all types who want a better handle on daily routines and habits.

Ep 064: From lack mindset in motherhood to abundance
28:55

The last 8 years of my life has been spent opening my mind up fully to the idea of how abundant our universe is and therefore, how abundant we are in life. We live with pure abundance all around us and have the ability to live from a place of unlimited possibilities, especially as mothers and yet we’re surrounded by lack mindset, lack vocabulary, lack beliefs.

The very idea of motherhood is abundant. We birth or become the caretakers of other human beings and have the capacity to open our hearts to them. It’s like love sprouts of of no where. That’s true abundance and the more we embrace that, the more enjoyable our everyday (sometimes seemingly mundane) lives will feel.

Ep 063: Mindset like a boss Monday- Cleaning doesn't have to suck
07:43

Today's mindset shift is brought to you by the ability to clean without dragging your feet and having a toddler-like temper tantrum. We've all been there, giving the side-eye to the daily cleaning and negatively discussing how much it sucks. It doesn't have to and the more you perpetuate that belief, the more you'll find yourself hating it. 

Cleaning isn't a punishment for living in your home anymore than brushing your teeth is a punishment for eating. It's a privilege to have full lives where messes occur. Change your mindset, change your life.

Ep 061: The ever changing seasons of motherhood w/ Meagan Francis
52:58

Motherhood, like life, is a series of ever-changing seasons. There are ebbs and flows, and sometimes curveballs we didn’t expect. The key isn’t to learn how to avoid the changes, but how to roll with them.

I had the pleasure of inviting Meagan Francis on the show today, a mom of 5 and one half of the wildly popular podcast The Mom Hour. We talk about her start in the mom blogosphere and our similar takes on the often dangerous “hot mess mom” culture.

Meagan throws down a lot of truth and doesn't hold back. Our conversation was honest and open about the realities of motherhood and how to get through them without being a martyr.

Today's mindset shift is all about eliminating the sabotaging behaviors we all fall into.

Time to love ourselves fully and stop the sabotaging behavior.

Ep 059: Sticking to routines when your life is unpredictable
22:14

Our lives aren't always as cookie-cutter as we had planned them to be. Life as a mom can be messy and unpredictable. Between work schedules, extracurriculars, sports, partners that travel and a myriad of other things that pop up each day, our day-to-day tasks can be unpredictable. So how do you stick to a solid routine when you don't live a routine life?

In this episode, I'm introducing the idea of a "floating routine" and how helpful it can be for keeping your life running smooth (ish) even if your daily life and schedule doesn't feel conductive to routines. The more out-of-control your life feels, the more routines will save you.

Ep 058: How to chill out when it comes to motherhood and making your home
27:54

When I put a call out to my audience to see what topics you most wanted to hear about, this answer struck me in such a hilariously real way: "Can you do an episode on how to chill out as a mom?" Could that be filled with anymore truth about how motherhood feels sometimes?

You asked, I answered. This episode is a tribute to the chill and how to achieve it in motherhood and home management. There is no greater burden in our lives than feeling stressed and out of control. In this episode, I tackle how to let go of control and how to embrace the ever changing (and ever-chaotic) seasons of motherhood without freaking out.

Let's chill, girl.

Ep 056: Stay productive, not busy
26:55

Busy is the new fine.

How many times do you answer "BUSY!" when someone asks how you are. Not, "Wonderful. Lovely. Super excited for this life. Peaceful. Calm. Wishing I had a taco right now." No, instead, it's "Really busy."

Mel Robbins said it best when she truthfully bombed us with, "Business is the ultimate form of laziness. Staying busy is our way of avoiding the things we really need to do."

I've committed my life to being full and productive, not busy. I want to fill my minutes with efficiency, not bleed them dry until my entire family is fall-down exhausted.

This episode will take you through the differences between business and productivity and how to become productive with the time you have. No more idle busy work for you, mama.

Ep 055: How I'm embracing a new season in my life (and an announcement on what's coming up!)
28:06

I'm right at the edge of a brand new season in my life and for our family; a season unlike any I have had in the past. This season is one of change in the form of kids entering new schools and me having more time. Don't be fooled. More time isn't always a good thing. More time just means more time to waste if we're not intentional with it.

This episode is all about how I'm embracing this new season and how you can do the same, with whatever season life has for you now. Change can feel scary and overwhelming because of the unexpected, but we can embrace change and the adventures it brings.

And speaking of new seasons, I'm also sharing how the podcast is getting a facelift this fall and what you can expect from our new and improved weekly lineup. My mission is to serve you in every way I can, and this new format speaks directly to that mission.

Finally, I want to give shout you all out and use all the praise hand emojis here. The Mother Like a Boss Podcast has hit 200,000 downloads in it's first 7 month and YOU made that happen. You listened, you shared, you came back week after week. I'm grateful in ways I can't even express. Thank you for being a part of this journey and for trusting me each week. You the real MVPs, mamas!

Here's to 200,000 more!

Ep 054: How to tell if you're making excuses (so you can finally stop!)
24:18

Excuses, excuses. We're all full of them, and after a while it can become difficult to tell the difference between our excuses and reality. Excuses are very different than explanations. Excuses keep us victims of our own circumstances.

For years, I made excuses for why I wasn't able to get things done the way other people could in various parts of my life. My excuses kept me stuck, but comfortable. This episode is a kick in the butt for anyone that wants to break free of the excuse-making cycle and take control of their own life.

Ep 053: M-Lab session with Micah Paschall
50:24

We're doing things a little different this summer when it comes to interviews. Rather than bring on an expert in a particular field, I invited real moms with real struggles to come on the show to share with us what they are going through in motherhood and at home. Sometimes, just hearing another mom ask a question that you've always had is exactly the thing you need to motivate you toward change and improvement.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Micah Paschall, a Mother Like a Boss student with a beautiful heart and story. It takes a brave woman to discuss her past and present feelings about homemaking open and honestly. We had a great chat about making habits and routines stick and I help her to create more non-negotiable chores for her children. 

Join me for another raw and beautiful episode in the M-Lab sessions.

Ep 052: 7 ways to make this the most organized school year yet!
35:55

I can't believe it's already time to do a back-to-school episode, but here we are. Time, it is a flyin' always. I know that most moms start the year off with the year off with the best of intentions. "This is the school year that I get our collective ish organized and staying that way!" and then by mid-October, you're in full-on chaos mode and not sure how you got there.

Today's episode is aimed to help you start, and keep a system that will make this the most organized school year yet. Start now and thank yourself in December when you've still got it all together, running smoothly.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Julia Holen who is going to rock your world with how open, honest and vulnerable she is about her life. It takes courage to speak about her struggles with bipolar disorder and she does so with strength and openness. We had a wonderful chat on how she can plan her routines around her life, rather than the other way around and how to stick to household and motherhood routines even in the face of difficult circumstances.

Will all of these work for you? Maybe not. This is based on my own opinion and what I've found gives you the most bang for your buck. Your caddy doesn't need to be overflowing with cleaning bottles to be effective.

Ep 046: A peek inside my daily journaling practice
35:44

I've been a journaling gal since the time I could write. I loved having diaries. I loved having beautiful journals and #allthepens to write with. Writing has always been cathartic for me and a great way to achieve the goals I set for myself. Journaling brings me closer to who I want to be.

But listen, I know journaling can seem extremely overwhelming. What do you write? How long do you write? What kind of journal is best? Should I use prompts? What if I am drawing a blank here? Today, I'm pulling back the curtain of my daily journaling practice and giving you the scoop on how this simple habit has helped me become a better mom, a more successful business owner and a happier woman all around.

Ep 045: Setting boundaries like a mother
31:25

I see you over there, mama. Guilt-ridden every time you say no and always want to please others. You wonder how you can feel better about what you say yes to and how you can live a life that feels more joy-filled and less resent-driven. The answer is boundaries.

I am what I like to call a "boundary ninja" but it hasn't always been that way. I spent many years of my life letting people in my business and personal life walk all over me for fear of stepping up and saying no. A boundary is the ultimate show of love, as you can say yes and be open wholeheartedly without resentment or anger. 

This episode is all about helping you build your emotional fence high enough so that the only people coming in are the ones you have allowed.

Ep 042: How we create a summer bucket list
25:53

I love summer. Aside from the humidity and obnoxious mosquitos, the summer is such a wonderful time to spend together as a family. But as we all know, we start the summer with the best of intentions to do #allthethings and end the summer with the realization that all we did was sit inside next to the AC waiting for school to start again.

A summer bucket list is an excellent way to prepare for the months ahead by deciding what you really want to be doing as a family. In this episode, I'm talking about how we do it in our home and how it's helped us create a summer schedule full of fun without the chaos and FOMO.

Ep 041: How to cultivate a productive (and fun!) summer while the kids are home
29:06

Friends, I have a confession to make: While I usually have a lot of my stuff together, last summer was a real wake up call for me. As a mama who always worked outside of the home, my first summer as a full time work-at-home mom was challenging. Summer (and any season changes in nature and our life) forces us to switch up our routines, for better or worse.

Today's episode is a discussion about how to cultivate a productive summer at home with the kids, while also having fun! There is no need to fall down the rabbit hole of chaos and distress during the summer months. Learn from my mistakes and let's grow together, mama!

Ep 036: Giving 100% without being a perfectionist
18:04

Perfectionism is a dirty little secret that a lot of us moms keep everyday. Whether it keeps you in a state of paralysis or shows up as procrastination, perfectionism steal our joy and stops us from making progress.

Effort however is far different than perfection. Effort feels good. The end result feels comforting, even if it's not the "perfect" outcome. You can give your all without the need to be perfect. Perfection comes from the outside. Idealism comes from the inside.

In this episode, I'm giving a little pep talk on how to give 100% everyday without having to feed into perfectionistic tendencies that will leave you feeling unsatisfied.

Ep 035: The #1 book that changed my life

I have always been a person who knows the power of the written word. I embrace that a good book can change our lives if we let it. Over the years, I've read many a book that helped me reach new levels of awesomeness, but none as much as the book I am discussing today.

It is because of Jen Sincero's You Are a Badass that I have transformed by life, my business, my relationship with my kids and my my relationship with myself. Today, I am sharing why this book is so important to me and why I am constantly recommending it to anyone that will listen.
